Distress Oxide Flowers

I've been having a lovely time for Scrapbook Boutique playing with Distress Oxide inks and getting well and truly inky lol.

I created my own paper to stamp the Gabi's Hibiscus flowers on and wanted it to coordinate with the beautiful paper from the Perfectly Plaid Paper Pad from Lawn Fawn.

40th Birthday Card for a Fishing Fanatic

Hi there - I hope you've had a great Saturday:)

I'm just popping in tonight to share a card I created this week for a friend's hubby - for his 40th birthday. As he enjoys fishing I was delighted to get the chance to play with my new Art Impressions Reel Great Guys Stamp Set.

Fishing Card straight

I created the watery background with Distress Oxide Inks - Broken China and Cracked Pistachio. I smooshed them all over my craft mat and sprayed them until the water beaded up nicely. I then pounced the card front into the ink over and over, moving quickly each time. 

Fishing Card angled CU

I coloured the image with Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.

I also stamped the image onto the smooshed background and my coloured version was then cut out and adhered with foam tape on top. The next two photos show the dimension a little better...

My hubby is planning a fishing trip tomorrow - that should mean some UCT for me yaaay - Uninterrupted Crafting Time lol. 

I hope your Sunday is awesome too whatever you get up to.

I'll be back on Tuesday with 3 Mudra cards and a video - hope to see you then.

Distress Oxide Playtime

I've been enjoying a little more play time with my Distress Oxide Inks. I had a few cards to make (requested by a friend) using the Kaisercraft Card Front Die so I got busy with the oxides. First of all here are the backgrounds I created...
